Even though I booked the private tour only to Sigirya rock and Dambulla Temple the guys showed me much more interesting places in one day in Sri Lanka, without increasing the price. Very nice tour

We just finished our trip after enjoying 11 beautiful days with Afkar visiting off the beaten paths in this beautiful country. Aashik came to us with a wonderful Itinerary in few minutes of contacted Kingfisher and it was a best deal. Ella and Sigiriya are the highlights of our tour. We stayed overnights in Five Star Hotels with wonderful views and they were creatively build. We felt that we are blessed to see these treasures in Sri Lanka and we warmly invite to the world to come and witness these sites,Thank you Kingfisher Tours. Your efforts are highly appreciated and creativity is highly recommended.

I booked a tour with Kingfisher Tours Sri Lanka for me and my family in June.. We spent time looking for other tour operators but Kingfisher Tours Sri Lanka ranked top among them with great customer reviews. We visited key places in Nuwara Eliya, Horton plains, Gregory Lake, Victoria park and wandered in tea plantations. Secondly we visited Kandy and enjoyed sightseeing in Kandy. Tooth relic temple was wonderful. We love the paintings there, they were amazing. Also we visited the most Tourists attractional places ( Sigiriya, Ella, Yala & Mirissa ) Our guide was Pradeep and he did a great job. We felt that he is also a member of our family. He is respectful, knowledgeable and also friendly person. He managed to fulfill our each and every requirement during the tour. Pradeep was very kind to give the best experience and knowledge of his country to us. Sri Lanka is truly a beautiful country and Kingfisher Tours Sri Lanka knows to emboss it and satisfy their clients. We are a part of that satisfied clients. recommended!!

I was driven the 4.5 hours from Colombo to Sigiriya by Thilina, my driver for the day. He's a respectable man, drives safe, and is very flexible (stops when requested for an additional picture or a meal). Sigiriya is amazing, it's a long climb (my iPhone registered 45 floors!), and I recommend you pack a big bottle of water because it can get really hot! The only drawback is that Thilina was only a driver, not a tour guide - his English was very basic, he didn't accompany me on the climb, and didn't really offer any history of Sri Lanka or tell any interesting facts. Another negative point is that Thilina didn't have a good restaurant in mind, we just ended up looking around for one. I have three recommendations for the tour company: 1 - Give the drivers some knowledge of Sri Lankan history and interesting facts so that they can entertain the guests 2 - Select a restaurant in advance for breakfast and/or lunch 3 - Provide an estimated cost for entrance tickets and food

Spend amazing 11 days here in Sri Lanka doing a range of activities - Snorkerling, Hiking, Climbing famous Sigiriya Lion Rock and many more with Glamping at Yala. My family and i thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to this beautiful paradise and very pleased with the service of Kingfisher Tours Sri Lanka provided, In particular our Guide Mr. Prabha was very accomoding in satisfying us with all his wonderful service such as early morning climb to Adam’s Peak and last minute massage cravings. He never missed to entertain our day with all his fun facts and experienced knowledge about the Country, It was very kind of Prabha to take the extra step to introduce to us some traditional Sri Lanka street food such as our now favourite coconut and honey pancake! More importantly, we felt safe in his hands as we toured this country during this difficult period of time. We would like to thank Kingfisher Tours for planning this amazing itinerary and Prabha for seeing it through. I would highly recommend Kingfisher Tours Sri Lanka to anyone who wants to visit Sri Lanka!
